    The North Carolina Gun Collectors Association is having its gun show this weekend at the Foothills Conference Center in Morganton, NC. It is just off Exit 105, I-40.

    This is a small, but high quality show with lots of collectible guns, some modern gun dealers, ammo, militaria, etc. When full, it has 140 tables.

    We will be there with assorted milsurps, modern guns, and the like. Hoping that some of the Asheville folk come down the mountain, since the show up there was cancelled last weekend.

    Who else is going?

    Dang it. I just committed to got shoot the USPSA match Saturday in Salisbury and stay with friends so I could make the Salisbury show on Sunday. It's a family trip. What time does this one close on Sunday? Hmm....

    I'm going to try to make it if work doesn't get in the way.

    One dealer there tonight has a North Hollywood Automag in .44 AMP on his table. Don't see those every day.

    Saw some 1903s/ and 03A3s, several Garands, and a few M1 carbines. Couple dealers have M2 ball, one of them in bulk (spam cans and crates). One dealer has several US bayonets. Not a whole lot of militaria this time. There are a couple guys who usually set up at this show that have a bunch of US militaria, but they didn't set up this time.

    Crowd was pretty good this morning, but by 2 PM, it slacked off quite a bit. Hoping that tomorrow we see folks who went to the Salisbury show today.
